    Saw this notice on the state forest website... Does anyone know why Green Ridge is closed? I hope it's snow related and not a permanent thing.

    basically from what i heard, they didnt maintain those trails for years, also, they needed to get some type of forestry certification to protect the logging industry, closing the trail had something to do with that. There is a 90 page dnr report about it, they said at the level of popularity the trail was unsustainable yet they put very little money into it.....lot of awesome times on that trail...

    I've been there three times. Twice last year and once this year. I took my lifted Forester to put it through its paces.

    When they closed the trails one of the rangers told us its because of endangered plants, corroding sections of the trail needed alot of work and no one had the funds.

    I had alot of fun on that trail!

    Sold that Forester and an Audi A3 to get my Taco Trd. :)
